Tile Color Spotlight: Rust Brick, Redefined

Tile Color Spotlight: Rust Brick, Redefined

Image: Lonny

What is it about exposed brick that makes us swoon? Maybe it's in the way it reveals a space's history. Or perhaps it's in the way it brings an outdoor motif indoors. Maybe it's the way it echoes urban cityscapes and airy warehouses. Whatever it is, there's no denying exposed brick's allure. This timeless design can hardly be dismissed as a mere trend, because we can't see it losing traction anytime soon.

Exposed brick may be in high demand, but you don't need to live in a refurbished warehouse or New York City loft to get this look. Our Glazed Thin Brick Tile in Rust echoes this interior asset with its classic hue and rustic texture. You're probably no stranger to exposed brick and could probably recognize its standard offset arrangement from a mile away. So today, we're taking things outside the box and show you how brick can take on a new life.

Al Fresco Appeal

We're accustomed to seeing brick outdoors, but probably not quite like this. Rather than taking on the traditional offset pattern, this patio's brick wall and bench opts for a straight set arrangement. Just a slight shift is all it takes to take brick from classic to contemporary.

This Amsterdam apartment building truly breaks the boundaries of building with brick by using panels to demarcate units. A mix of patterns adds an imaginative element to brick that we don't often see.

Patio Paradise

These brick-laden garden paths and patio floors can lead to lush oases and personal escapes that feel miles away from the day-to-day.

We love how these leftover bricks add a playful eyelash pattern to this rustic stone path (it's also a great DIY project for leftover tile!).

The brick floor in this enclosed patio radiates with welcoming whimsy. You'd never guess it was a backyard in the middle of Brooklyn!

Interior Intrigue

As much as we love seeing brick designs outside, its the impact it can have on an indoor space that really gets our heads turning. This living room's rustic brick fireplace offers an unexpected backdrop for lush greenery, transforming the space into an urban oasis.

This hallway takes a classic turn with a twist on the herringbone pattern. The wealth of natural light makes this brick corridor feel airy and open.

Love this weathered brick look as much as we do? Mix Rust with Creme Brulee and Silk for a similar, vintage-style look on your backsplash, floor, or patio.

We could stay here all day. From the crystal-adorned chandelier to the copper tub to the tufted chaise,this lavish bathroom's luxurious decor is made all the more irresistable with the exposed brick wall.

Unlike many exposed brick kitchens we've seen, this brick backsplash only extends partially up the wall. Weathered elements and rustic textures lend it a cozy cottage look, while a contrasting white wall and plenty of natural light keeps the space feeling open and airy.
